” I won’t stand by the gate again if I miss any class ” Henry said.
” ah! Bro’s, it’s because of the class you will miss or you don’t want to do your job ” asked Larry. Truth to be told, that’s not the reason Henry don’t what to stand by the gate maybe because he wanted to be seeing Lizzy face always.
” whatever ” answered Henry. They met a teacher coming out of their class they became disappointed. Quietly, they walk to their various sit and sit down without a trace of smile on their face.
